© 2017 This paper analyzes the effect of common control actions on the performance of wastewater treatment plants, performance defined by criteria such as: effluent quality, economical cost and greenhouse gas emissions. At the same time the paper proposes to use a quantitative indicator which incorporates all the mentioned performance criteria allowing a more accurate evaluation of the control actions. This study was performed by numerical simulation using a benchmark model that incorporates a dynamic model of the greenhouse gas emissions in all the units of the wastewater treatment plant.
